Police have opened up investigations against four people believed to have incited or participated in the assassination of Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Col Ibrahim Abiriga.
They include Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze, on the basis of a video in which she explains how easy it is to attack Abiriga even with his bodyguards all around him.
Local reports add that the second file is opened against Nasser Mugerwa, who sent out an audio recording claiming responsibility for Abiriga’s assassination. Mugerwa details how they used crime preventers that have been trained by the government to kill Abiriga and that many other supporters of the ruling party National Resistance Movement (NRM) who backed the age limit amendment bill are on the waiting list.
He listed MPs Evelyn Anite, Ruth Nankabirwa, Simeo Nsubuga and Raphael Magyezi as the next possible targets. Mugerwa also threatened President Yoweri Museveni and his son Muhoozi Kainerugaba.
“All of you who touched on the constitution, you will pay. Even you Museveni and your son Muhoozi we are following you step by step,” Mugerwa says in the audio which is making rounds on social media.
